New music single and video!
"Pretty For a Dark Girl"
Music video and music single
Lyrics by Lulu Fall, music by Lulu Fall and Kris Johnson
Performed by Lulu Fall with the Kris Johnson Group
Video directed and edited by Christen Cofer
This song is about Colorism. It highlights the harsh prejudices and stereotypes that dark-skinned women and girls face interculturally, specifically in the African American community. As a dark-skinned woman, Lulu Fall pulled from her personal experiences, testimonies from female friends and family, and social media community to shed light on such a taboo subject.
"As a child, I was teased because of my skin color and for having African parents. As an adult, I was told I my beauty was an exception for my skin tone, because dark-skinned women aren't considered to be as desirable. This song sheds light on Colorism. This song empowers Black women, and all women who were discriminated against because of their looks. This song is about me."
The video and single is the first single from the upcoming album "The Unpaved Road" by the Kris Johnson Group with Lulu Fall, which is scheduled for release on Artist Centric Music, LLC on August 22, 2017.
